Celebrate the voices of 21st century America with the Youth Speaks Teen Poetry Slam Semi-Finals at OMCA! The annual slam, an Olympic-style poetry competition, features hundreds of young writers, emcees, and performers from throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. On this night, join some of the best young artists, leaders, and poets ages 13–19 from the greater Bay Area as they battle it out in the James Moore Theater for a chance to represent at the Grand Slam Finals on May 11.

Grand Slam winners will return to the Museum for an encore performance during Friday Nights @ OMCA on May 17!
